Partially for the below*…
Per the logline, Clifford the Big Red Dog will star Darby Camp (The Christmas Chronicles 1 &) as Emily Elizabeth. As Emily “struggles to fit in at home and at school, she discovers a small red puppy who is destined to become her best friend. When Clifford becomes a gigantic dog and attracts the attention of a genetics company, Emily and her Uncle Casey (Jack Whitehall) have to fight the forces of greed as they go on the run across New York City. Along the way, Clifford affects the lives of everyone around him and teaches Emily and her uncle the true meaning of acceptance and unconditional love.”
…but mostly because they’re not using the music from the show. It’s not even that I like the song; it’s that hearing it twenty million times from when my kids watched it** has burned a groove in my brain. I feel weird when I see Clifford and don’t hear that music. Also: the dogs probably won’t be able to talk, and that’s a problem like right there.
*”Fight the forces of greed,” forsooth!
**My wife was absolutely convinced that Mr. Bleakman was ex-CIA who had seen some sh*t in his day, and was thus both crotchety and unfazeable when it came to a goram twenty-foot high red dog next door. The thing was, nothing in the show ever proved her wrong. …And, hey: everybody’s got their own coping mechanisms, all right?
